Many OS/2 SAAREXX programs work almost as is under WindowsNT ooRexx, the RexxUtil functions are similar, the WindowsNT CMD shell is similar, and the RxSock interface is almost identical. Some OS/2 RexxUtil functions are not yet or not more supported under WindowsNT, e.g. SysGetMessage, SysProcessType, and SysQueryProcessCodePage.
REXX, SPF, Internet drafts
Version 2.0.5 of rxwhois.cmd now also works as WindowsNT ooRexx script, just rename it to rxwhois.rex. I've adopted additional local character sets from utf-8.cmd including codepage 923 (ISO 8859-15, Latin 9) and 878 (KOI8-R), but I've only tested 858 (pc-multilingual-850+euro) and 1252 (windows-1252).
As always some whois-servers for ccTLDs had to be updated, for details see the source. After a system crash of my OS/2 box in June I was unable to check anything beyond the whois servers already known by rxwhois.cmd, whois.iana.org, and whois-servers.net. Just for fun I've added the eleven IDN TLDs for the test beginning in September 2007:
- Chinese, simplified
- Chinese, traditional
Known issue: rxwhois.cmd expects UTF-8 as charset of whois servers, but whois.iana.org uses Latin-1 for at least one TLD ht (Haiti) entry. The IANA folks told me that they'll intend to use ASCII data for the eleven IDN test TLDs.
